    DigitalQuill Has Best Datafeed Plugin for WordPress 

    Digital Quill seems to have the best and pretty inexpensive (around $40 – unlimited) plugin for using datafeeds on a WordPress site – Or importing from Excel or CSV file into WordPress. Read the tutorials and seems really good for what I need… It even updates posts when you change the source file! Nice, real nice.

    I have a ton of data I need to make available – I am really good with Excel, so I can create and update Excel really easy. SQL commands – its been six years since I’ve done any serious SQL stuff, and even then it wasn’t that serious. This is a match made in heaven.

    Update: Theres a problem with this plug-in: PHP timeout. If you are trying to import a lot of records, depending on your host and your setup the plugin may time out and it has no provisions for recovery – it’s a manual and frustrating task. Backup your database before proceeding. I hear that WP Review plugin comes with “Importman” plugin – it seems to do pretty much everything this one does – I’m wondering if that works better.

    Co-Opting Content with Digg-like Bar for WordPress 

    What a cool plug-in! It’s called “WordPress Bar“. I’m trying it out right now. Try any of the external links like this one and notice the bar at the top. It does a TON of things, including tracking clicks, shortening URLs, giving users a way to share your post after they’ve left your site, without having to return and co-opt the destination page.

    I’m really impressed. This guys should be charging for this..

    Look at what happens when you go to the WP-Smart Tools site following my link, the top bar looks like part of the destination site (click to enlarge):

    Wordpress Bar - Click to enlarge

    That’s nothing.. Look at what happens when  I click on the little Facebook icon to share on Facebook:

    Wordpress Bar co-opting link - Click to enlarge

    Facebook takes the title and URL of the short URL, and since your short URL is copied from the original, well.. You get the picture – You co-opt the destination content, pretty much! Now whenever someone else on Facebook clicks n that short link, they’ll have your navigation bar at the top… Rinse and repeat if they share/bookmark something.

    All I can say is: Wow. And Free.

    A while back I bought WP Smart Tools – I have to say this is a fine piece of software. Had a little issue and Joe, the programmer solved it an a flash. He rocks. If you’re doing anything with WordPress – get his plug-ins.
